I went and saw Oingo Boingo the week before I believe. I recall driving by soon after that concert and seeing a tail of a little plane sticking out of the old place.It was shortly after they decided to tear this old building down....
I don't have a very clear recollection of this show, having ridden down I-5 from Berkeley in the back of Grey Wicker's pickup truck the day (night?) before. I recall it was very sparsely attended and I enjoyed the musice very much, but was sort of creeped out by the fact that the place was maybe half full.
my second show,went w/6 friends,lost them at the door,,,found
new friends.....like magic... was plugged into the band...never !
had such a good time , show ended, i walked out thru the door
i looked to my right....there's my 6 friends....! take that ride again
Weir was excellent-rallying to his vocal delights - I paced the joint like nobody's bizness because it was so loose...People were HORRIFIED at John Lennon's death, unable to see any sense of freedom. Deciding to entertain the band, I did a shaddow dance at the upper door way to Truckin'....I also mocked Weir, yelling "hollywier Hi'z!" because he was so perfectly singing. Always wanting to loosen those stiffs,
keep your character, enjoy living, share your fortune,
